Nirvana sued thirty year old t-shirt with 1949 illustration – fr



In 1989 I bought a Nirvana t-shirt featuring an Upper Hell map as depicted in Dante’s Hell. (The back of the shirt reads: “fudge packin crack smokin satan worshippin mother fucker”) Now the granddaughter of CW Scott-Giles, who created this hellish illustration for a 1949 translation by Dante Hell, Nirvana LLC is suing for copyright infringement. From Rolling Stone:

The costume, obtained by Rolling stone, was filed by Jocelyn Susan Bundy, Scott-Giles’ granddaughter, who is described in the lawsuit as “the sole surviving parent and sole successor in title to the copyright in works created by her deceased grandfather”. Along with Nirvana LLC, the lawsuit names as defendants Live Nation Merchandise, Merch Traffic and Silva Artist Management[…]

Bundy is asking that the production and distribution of all counterfeit merchandise be stopped and that the defendants provide accounting for “profits attributable to their infringing behavior”. The lawsuit seeks damages, including all losses suffered by the alleged violation, in an amount to be proved at trial, as well as all profits made “as a result of their contrary conduct”, also in an amount to be proved at trial. trial.
